As if there’s ever a need for an excuse to visit Hawaii…
Kirsten Dunst and Brie Larson have been tapped to receive awards at the 2013 Maui Film Festival running June 12-16th. Festival director Barry Rivers made the announcement, saying, “The Maui Film Festival is ecstatic to announce Kirsten Dunst and Brie Larsen as two of 2013’s honorees. They are both not only beautiful women inside and out but are also talented nearly beyond description and uniquely passionate in their portrayals of the characters they bring to life. I have no doubt each of their Celestial Cinema Big Screen Tributes will be spectacular.”
According to the festival, Dunst will receive the Pathfinder Award honoring “an actor or actress whose eclectic choices and charismatic performances encourage us all to expand our definition of what it means to be human.” Larson has earned the Rising Star Award which goes to a “young film artist for daring to dream big dreams and then delivering brilliant performances when opportunity knocks.”
Dunst’s film credits include New York Stories, Upside Down, On the Road, Melancholia, Marie-Antoinette, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Spider-Man, Bring It On, The Virgin Suicides, Drop Dead Gorgeous, and Interview with a Vampire. Next up is The Two Faces of January with Viggo Mortensen and Oscar Isaac.
Larson’s filmography includes Short Term 12, The Spectacular Now, Don Jon, Weighting, 21 Jump Street, and Rampart.
